About the book:
Will a damaged reputation and desire for society’s approval thwart the legacy of grace?
Tainted by scandal and forced to leave London for the quieter Brighton countryside, the Honorable Miss Clara DeLancey is a shadow of her former society self. She’s lost the man she loved to another and, in a culture that has no patience for self-pity, is struggling with depression. A chance encounter brings her a healing friendship with the sisters of an injured naval captain. But Clara’s society mama is appalled at the new company she’s keeping.
Captain Benjamin Kemsley is not looking for a wife. But his gallant spirit won’t let him ignore the penniless viscount’s daughter–not when she so obviously needs assistance to keep moving forward from day to day. Can he protect his heart and still keep her safe?
When they’re pushed into the highest echelons of society at the Prince Regent’s Brighton Pavilion, this mismatched couple must decide if family honor is more important than their hopes. Can they right the wrongs of the past and find future happiness together–without finances, family support, or royal favor?
My review (4-stars)
I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the Regency Brides in this series, and I am a little sad to see it end. I was curious to see if Miss DeLancey would be a character that I would genuinely like and after a few pages, I did begin to like her and became interested in her story. I felt that I better understood her and had a bit of sympathy for her.
There is some dialog that made me smile and I found myself wanting nothing but the best for Clara. There is a bit of darkness and danger blended in that I didn’t expect to find, but I actually enjoyed it very much.
I’ve loved getting to know the characters and will miss them. I look forward to seeing what Ms. Miller has next for her readers. This has been a wonderful series and one I highly recommend. Although, the books could each be read as a stand alone, I suggest you read them in order to fully appreciate each and every story.
I received this book through Kregel Publishing and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.
